barcel-ooooooo-naaaaaa

Erm, yeah, I pretty much got here and went to sleep. It was midnight, I'd a stressful couple of hours. They waited up for me. That was nice of 'em.
A hearty breakfast was enjoyed, before a trek on up (OK, a metro ride, and one of only 2 I've taken here. The other being from the ferry to the hostel, obvs) to Parc Güell for a spot of Gaudi-fangirling. This post is gonna be quite Gaudi heavy, fyi. Oh yeahhh.
Wandered down to La Sagrada Familia, then for a closer look at Torre Agbar and all the way up to where La Pedrera and Casa Batlió are. And around there a bit. And into Zara. And up to the til with the thigh high boots.

AND THEN (moving swiftly on)
into an asian buffet place - they had chinese, thai, AND sushi. For 10 euros. I was in heaven. I ate a lot of food - so much so I wasn't hungry again all day - and went on my way, down to La Ramblas and then all the way up past Plaça Espanya and back to the hostel. Google Pedometer says around 14 miles. Yup.

Some pictures!
Including a mental Miró sculpture. I do like a bit of Miró, I researched him for GCSE art. Fact.
